Now, 6 years later, after the memorial concert the Dutch Ambassador in Mexico Mr. Jan Jaap van de Velde unveiled the painting of Maria de Lourdes as the "Paloma Mensajera" (messenger pigeon) in the famous pub Tenampa on the Plaza Garibaldi.

On initiative of the Foundation Maria de Lourdes the Voice of Mexico, Caroline Voorbergen (Carolina de Holanda) and the Dutch Club de Admiradores de Maria de Lourdes this painting could be realized. Caroline looked for and found a painter in Mexico, Macario Flores, who painted this splendid and appropriate portrait of Maria de Lourdes, including the lyrics of the song with the same title Maria de Lourdes used to sing and written by Juan Arturo Ortega. Hereafter, thanks to the efforts of Caroline, this memorial concert and the festive unveiling of the painting in Tenampa could be effectuated. Click Azteca for more information.
